Hi guys, I've recently played a game on Correspondence chess and managed to win on time, but the Opening was rather strange, and I never played against it before.
Heres the game
Why did black give up a rook for nothing?
Take a look at 11. ...h4+
Did you read the annotations? Possibly for Development. Besides, that what this topic is about.
7...c5 was an awful move
I played this in OTB as black for a short while but I used to play 7...a6 not 7..c5?. 31.Bxa6 was a nice tactic winning a pawn. After 7..c5 white has nearly a 70 percent score.
I'm just thinking as I checked the database and this is theory, so to me its interesting.
